MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR
The room is decorated, there are some Christmas trees in it, chairs are standing near the walls, children are sitting on the chairs or standing nearby.
They are going to meet Santa and have some competitions.
(For every competition all the children are divided into 3 teams (crews) each consisting of 6 or 10 students. Each crew has to choose a captain. Every captain gets a Christmas hat and puts it on (white, blue or red one)).
I. The Clown (comes into the room, stays in front of the children and starts): - “Ha-ha-ha! Hello! Do you know me, Who am I?”
- No, I am Santa!
(Children are saying NO! Santa is coming in with his helper Elf.)
Santa:- “Haw-haw-haw! Hello! Do you know me, Who am I?”
(Children are saying SANTA!)
The Clown: - “No! I am Santa!”
Santa:- “No! I am Santa!”
The Clown: - “No! I am!”
Santa:- “OK! If you are Santa, where is your Santa`s hat?”
The Clown (puts a hat on): - “Here!”
Santa:- “And where is your belt?”
The Clown (puts a belt on): - “Here!”
Santa:- “Aha! But where are your boots?”
The Clown (shows boots): - “Here!”
Santa:- “OK! Where is your Santa`s bag?”
The Clown (takes an Elf`s bag): - “Here!”
Santa:- “And where is your helper Elf?”
The Clown (takes one of the children): - “Here!”
Santa:- “OK! If you are Santa, you must know everything about Christmas and New Year!”- Now answer my questions:
(The Clown gives wrong answers.
Santa asks children if they know the answers.)
- “I see, all of us see, that you are not Santa”
The Clown (Cries):
- “Of course I am not!”
- “But I like when children are laughing and smiling, that`s why I want to be Santa!”
- “You can`t be Santa, because you are a Clown, but you can help us!”
- Now children, answer my last question: “How many deer are there in my sleigh?”
- Let`s see, whose reindeer are the best!

Then the teams share the papers, draw the middle part of the picture, turn the papers and share them again.
When the pictures are ready, the captains open the papers.
